Upgrade HTC Inspire 4G to Jelly Bean 4.2.2 using CM10.1 BlueBot custom ROM
HTC Inspire 4G is going to get a chance at reveling in Jelly Bean 4.2.2 with the tutorial we have for you today. There will be many features to enjoy after you perform this guide where we are using a custom ROM called CM10.1 BlueBot.
Requirements are now the next part of this guide. Here you go: make backups using our guide (backup the data that’s in the phone’s internal memory using an external hard disk or memory card), flash USB drivers for the smartphone on your notebook, use the Inspire 4G that is bootloader and carrier unlocked, turn on USB debugging and charge the battery of the phone.
- The very first step to barge in says the following: download the CyanogenMod 10.1 BlueBot Unnoficial Build 3 custom ROM (the file is labelled Bluebot-v3.zip) together with Gapps archive (you must choose the file called gapps-jb-20130301-signed.zip) on your computer. Now that these files are where we told you to download both of them, you will have to plug the phone to the laptop, then move the CM10.1 BlueBot Unnoficial Build 3 ROM and the Google Apps to the memory card root on the Inspire 4G.
- Unplug the latter from your notebook.
- Make sure the smartphone is turned off so that you can enter it in Recovery Mode; do it using the following manner: press + hold Power and Volume Down simultaneously and, when the device is booted into HBOOT menu, you should opt for Recovery next.
- Step four needs you to choose Backup&Restore, then opt for Backup; this way, your Inspire 4G has just received a NANDroid backup. Next up: return to the Recovery Menu where you need to choose Factory reset/Wipe data, then opt for Yes and then go back to the Recovery Menu.
- Choose Wipe Cache Partition and then select Wipe Dalvik Cache. When you are done performing all of these tasks, you need to also choose Install zip from SD card.
- Step six will urge you to opt for Choose zip from SD card.
- Step seven will afterwards ask you to opt for the Bluebot .zip file and use Power to choose it. Confirm its flashing and then wait for this process to end. After it’s done that, you have to opt for the Google Apps package the same way you did for the other file, then confirm its installation, too. Now return to the phone’s Recovery Menu.
- For step eight, all you need to do is this: choose the system restarting option and the Inspire 4G is going to boot into the CM10.1 BlueBot custom ROM that will add the Android 4.2.2 JB update to the list of its specifications.
Say that the smartphone shows a message that says something like “Status 7 error”, what do you do to get rid of it? Here you go: find a related kernel and be sure to flash it on the phone before you flash the CM10.1 BlueBot ROM.
If, however, you see the handset being unable to get unstuck from boot (or unable to get out of a boot loop), then simply do as follows: initiate a phone’s wipe cache partition and then a complete Wipe Dalvik cache, then reboot the HTC Inspire 4G.
To return to the phone’s older ROM: have it boot into recovery, choose Backup&Restore and watch closely for a list containing the name of the ROM to appear. When that happens, just restore the tool by opting for it from the aforementioned list.
